Towner Eastbourne is hosting the Turner Prize 2023, the world’s leading prize for contemporary art, as the centrepiece of our centenary celebrations.

One of the best-known prizes for the visual arts in the world, the Turner Prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art. Established in 1984, the Prize is awarded to a British artist for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the previous twelve months. The announcement of the winner of the Turner Prize will take place on 5 December 2023. The Turner Prize winner will be awarded £25,000 with £10,000 awarded to the other shortlisted artists.

With support from Eastbourne Borough Council, East Sussex County Council and the University of Sussex, the Turner Prize will bring transformative cultural and social experiences for visitors and residents.

Large Print and an Audio Guide, as well as other accessible resources, can be found on our Turner Prize Accessibility page.

This is a Free exhibition. Advance online booking is recommended, giving you priority access during busy times. You can also visit without booking in advance but may need to wait at peak times.
